Lifeliners

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Three days before Christmas Brian Burrell of Pensacola, FL, wasn’t at home with his family or on vacation in a sunny locale, he was rapidly descending toward the ground in Afghanistan in a Casa 212 airplane.

The plane’s descent stopped roughly 150 feet above the ground and the back door opened. A buzzer sounded and Burrell, a civilian loadmaster at Bagram Airfield, pulled a lever and parachutes deployed as pallets stacked with food and gifts from the United States slid out the back of the plane, headed to the grateful servicemembers of Forward Operating Base Joyce. 

Pallets of supplies that include donations from the Fort Campbell, KY, can be seen at Forward Operating Base Joyce during the “Big Drop” by 101st Sustainment Brigade, Task Force Lifeliners, 101st Airborne Division, Dec. 22nd. The drop was made by air in an effort to reduce the number of convoys and, thus, possible improvised explosive attacks. (Photo by U.S. Army Spc. Adam L. Mathis, 17th Public Affairs Detachment)
